Activists Contest EPA Actions on Proposed Mine
DENVER—The Environmental Protection Agency is violating laws requiring public input by working behind closed doors to draft regulations for a proposed uranium mine in northern Colorado, activists said, citing agency documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. The EPA said Thursday it isn't violating any laws but is collecting information in anticipation of a permit application from Powertech USA, which wants to mine uranium using technology that injects a solution underground to dissolve and extract the mineral.
